i5 750 or i7 920??? Help

Building a new computer and deciding on what processor to get. I think it's between these two....any thoughts?

I know i5 does not have hyper threading and the i7 does but will that really make a difference?

Google for Tom's Hardware Guide's CPU charts, find your two chips, and see how they perform in the apps you care about. Theoretical performance differences and synthetic benchmarks are nice and everything, but you're always best seeing how they compare with the real-world apps you actually use, or at least, something similar to them.
